    Despite living in NY state for well almost 30 years, I barely spent a few days in NYC on business (long after I left) and attended a few ballgames in the boroughs and didn't have a camera at the time. This time I did and lots has changed since then. I packed light and only used 2 lenses, so I could fit in a small bag. The 9-18mm and Panny 35-100mm F4-5.6 w/EM1. Left the big primes/zooms at home.

    It was fleet week, so saw a few ships in the distance, but no time to get closer up.

    Nice job capturing NYC - one of my favorite cities to visit!

    The taxi meter photo really calls to me. What wonderful colors and light. Thanks.

    Thanks..apparently we were there around/near the phenomenon called the "NY Solstice" when the sun sets along all or certain avenues. Unfortunately I was stuck in the taxi at the time and couldn't get a full view...too bad I wasn't on the ESB at that time!.

    Lots of great stuff. I'll be heading there myself this coming weekend, so hope to get images even half as good as yours.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice pics, and congrats on your Pens victory.

    Were the aerial photos taken from the Empire State Building observation deck?
